Viking Raid (Replay #1) by Nia Farrell

This is a quick, hot read. I would place it more in the erotica genre than erotic romance, as it lacked development of any credible relationship between Gunner and Brianna. However it was steamy, easy to read and entertaining enough in a bubble-gum and candy-floss way, sweet and flavoursome at the time but not long lasting. I wasn’t convinced as to why a virgin would choose a public play scene with a man she really didn’t know as the place to lose said virginity.


If the author had explored Brianna’s decision more, which on paper felt like a very impulsive choice that didn’t hold water, this would have improved the story. I got the impression that losing her virginity in public would not have been her ideal choice. So why did she? The reason given within the story was one that would quickly have been reversed in real life. Exploring the decision and Brianna’s feelings would have not only strengthened the plot, but would also have given this book real depth.


99 pages just isn’t long enough to do more than give the bare bones of a tale. A novella has to sacrifice something, and in this case it was getting to truly know our hero and heroine, so that instead we could have several very hot and heavy scenes. If you go in not expecting anything more than to be lightly entertained, then you will enjoy this. I got it free in A Taste of Submission, by Pandora Spock, so it was a win-win all round for me.

REVIEW //\\ Auctioned Anthology

Auctioned: An Omegaverse Anthology
by Leann RyansMerel PierceV.T. BondsRaevyn LondonL.P. DillonEmma MountfordIsoellen

This is an anthology of quicker reads, ranging form short story to novella length. I have to admit that am very hard to please when reading stories of this type, as my enjoyment comes from connecting with the characters and feeling their emotions. Word count constraints can leave me with a feeling that the story could have just been so much more. So, rather than focus on what was lacking (because I WILL feel that for 99% of short reads) I’m looking for the good, highlighting the positive, since I know I won’t ever feel the same about a short story/novella as I do a novel.


Fight For Her by Raevyn London
3 stars – Liked it.

This is a pleasant, sweet read of an alpha rescuing his mate, and himself, from the slave arena. The conflict is easily resolved, but then this is a short story in an anthology, so there isn’t the time to develop a full depth story. I felt we got to know Ander’s really well, maybe more so than Kasi, both main characters were likeable and definitely had personality.
I found the authors writing voice easy to get along with, it had a nice tone and flow. The story was entertaining, easy to read and I enjoyed it – so job done.


Unexpected Gift by Leann Ryan
3.5 stars – Definitely liked it.

This was a wonderful twist on the usual Alpha-omega story. I really enjoyed this new take on the dynamic, the emotions portrayed and the integrity of Scarlett. Other than the circumstances in which they met, this is one of the most consensual omegaverse stories I have read.
It was a wonderful, warm and light tale perfect to lift the heart and left me wishing it was a full length story. I’d love to have spent more time with this couple.


The Omega Spy by VT Bonds
4 stars – Really liked it.

This is a darker omegaverse, we don’t experience too much of the non-con directly but it does occur in ‘present’ time. This is more akin to the M/f omegaverse stories many of us are more familiar with. It found this to be a really well thought through and nicely plotted story. There was enough world building to draw me in, and I felt as though I knew both characters. Given the limited ‘time’ of a short story, the author managed to pack a LOT in to this. So much so that I would LOVE to see this expanded into a full length story at some point in the future.


Eli’s Hellcat by Merel Pierce
5 stars – It was amazing.

Another really great story, this focused on three individuals, building their characters and connection to each other. The plot was strong, but pared down to allow for the emotion and depth of the story. Merel Pierce writes strong omegaverse stories, this had dark themes, though within the story itself there is nothing that would require a trigger warning.
Every word, deed and action built into knowing and understanding the characters in this story, particularly Lorin and Eli. I would have loved to have spent more time in Magda’s head – I just knew there was so much more to her story than we heard.


Alpha’s Pet by Emma Mountford
3.5 stars – Definitely liked it.

I wish this story had been a little bit longer, there was a lot of plot to get through and I just needed a little more time on them forming a bond/connection. It’s quite a poignant story and has quite an open to interpretation ending, which won’t be for some. I liked Rayne and Elland, I felt as though I got to know them as they are in the now, and the author certainly wrote a story that caught and held my attention.



Proper Behaviour by Isoellen
3 stars – Liked it.

The story of Druku and Niddie was quick and sweet, leaving me wanting to know more about their world. The pace was good and the story flowed nicely. If this was extended to a novella I could see plenty of opportunities for extra scenes that would add extra depth, more understanding and smoother continuity to the story, creating a really great read. However this is still a steamy, entertaining and nicely written story.


An Alpha for Dahlia by L.P. Dillon
3 stars – Liked it.

Dahlia and Bain’s story is very sweet and cute. The plot was really interesting and had plenty of great ideas, though some of them had to be a little rushed in order to fit it all in. This is another story that I could picture being extended into at least a novella, if not a full length story. There was an element of tell, not show, about this story, I particularly felt this more towards the end.
My preference is for emotions/feelings etc to be demonstrated through description rather than statement, one puts me in a characters head, the other feels like a script being narrated. That’s a personal preference though, and as far as characters and storylines go I did enjoy this. 

Algar-Din
Crown jewel of the Rathsima Empire. Home to the finest flesh markets in the galaxy.
To be featured in a market square auction during the Unity Festival meant only the highest class of clientele would have the opportunity to bid.
It was a reassurance that meant very little to the men, women, and aliens who were forced onto that stage and made to listen as the crowd decided how much – or little – their lives were worth.
The most one could hope for was a merciful owner.
But what if they found their mates instead?
~~~~~
This fabulous group of authors has joined together to bring you an Omegaverse/Sci-Fi crossover anthology filled to the brim with all the dark and naughty fun you’ve come to expect from these genres. All kinds of unique relationships between dynamics can be found within, as well as a variety of orientations.
One thing they all have in common?
That Alpha growl.
Join Leann Ryans, Merel Pierce, Raevyn London, Isoellen, L.P. Dillon, Emma Mountford, and V.T. Bonds for a sexy ride through the lives of the men, women, and aliens who pass through the Rathsima Flesh Markets – But don’t wait too long, this anthology is only available until July of 2020!
~~~~~
This book is set in a world where criminal and questionable behavior is prevalent. There will be strong language, violence, and the occasional scene of assault that may trigger some readers. You may cringe, you may cry, you may rage, but if you can bear to fight through that darkness, HEA’s (for most) wait for you on the other side. PROCEED WITH CAUTION.You have been warned.

Excerpt 1:

Wicked by Jennifer Bene:

“Are you a dirty girl, Tori?” he asked, squeezing her hip in a firm grip. “Have you ever been treated like a filthy little slut, or have you only let people call you Baby?”

Her brows pulled together, a flicker of something on her face that he actually couldn’t figure out when she replied with, “I’ve only let people call me Baby, sir.”

Hmm…
Lifting the marker, he carefully wrote the words ‘DIRTY GIRL’ on her right thigh. “Do you know what dirty girls get, Tori?”

“No, sir,” she replied, her eyes glued to the stark contrast of the black marker on her pale skin.

“Exactly what they deserve.”

Excerpt 2:

Unexpected by Measha Stone

“I didn’t mean to sound rude,” she said, and she meant it. People threw her into the bitch category before getting to know her. She wouldn’t blame any of them. First impressions weren’t her strong suit. His lips cracked into a smile, not a pleased and handsome one, but rather a grin that soaked her panties—a knowing grin filled with dark and sinister promises. 

“I know you didn’t.” His fingers tightened, sending another jolt of fire through her scalp. “And I know you weren’t trying to manipulate me into letting you top from the bottom.”

She opened her mouth to agree with him, but the arching of his brow stilled her tongue. That was exactly what she’d been doing.

“I don’t think we’re supposed to start yet,” she said instead.

His smile didn’t fade as his other hand caressed her jaw.

“I can tell our couples are ready to get started, so everyone have fun and play safe!” Madison’s voice boomed over the crowd.

“Now we are.” He released her hair. “Let’s go.”





Teaser 3:

Facade by Livia Grant:

Just as the marble fell into its slot, the stress of the day and heat of the room combined with the dizzy feeling from watching the wheel spinning caught up to her.

Stephanie wobbled on her feet enough that Master Wilde had to reach out and steady her with a tight grip on each of her hips. He crowded closer, molding his muscular chest against her back to help prop her up.

“Whoa, I’ve got you, baby.”

Baby? Stephanie Kranowski was no one’s baby, least of all some guy she’d met thirty seconds before. “I’m not your baby,” she whispered back, trying not to make a scene on the stage.

“Oh, baby. Tonight you’re gonna be whatever the hell I want you to be.”

His ominous words flowed over her. Most women might be afraid of the edgy promise he’d whispered against her ear, but to Stephanie they were like a long-lost song she’d been waiting to hear again.

As the wheel finally came to a halt, her Dom for the night chuckled. “Hey look at that. The perfect kink to marry up with the belting you’re going to receive. I’ll have to consider changing over to a nice crop instead of my belt.”

Fucking great. I rolled Pony Play.

Individual Blurbs and Excerpts:


Wicked by Jennifer Bene
Tori has always been the babygirl looking for her perfect Daddy, but after years of
disappointment could Pierce — a notorious trust fund bad boy — be the one she’s always
needed?


“Are you a dirty girl, Tori?” he asked, squeezing her hip in a firm grip. “Have you ever been treated like a filthy little slut, or have you only let people call you Baby?”

Her brows pulled together, a flicker of something on her face that he actually couldn’t figure out
when she replied with, “I’ve only let people call me Baby, sir.”

know what dirty girls get, Tori?”

“No, sir,” she replied, her eyes glued to the stark contrast of the black marker on her pale skin.

“Exactly what they deserve.”



Facade by Livia Grant
Sean has to sneak away to Black Light to shed his gentleman’s mask. The closet
adrenaline junkie comes to play hard. But retired porn star Karly Starr doesn’t want any
part of his bullshit BDSM games. She just joined Black Light to get laid. Too bad for her
the wheel paired her with the only guy with the willpower to deny her until she’s begging
to play his dirty games.


Just as the marble fell into its slot, the stress of the day and heat of the room combined with the
dizzy feeling from watching the wheel spinning caught up to her.


Stephanie wobbled on her feet enough that Master Wilde had to reach out and steady her with a
tight grip on each of her hips. He crowded closer, molding his muscular chest against her back to
help prop her up.


“Whoa, I’ve got you, baby.”


Baby? Stephanie Kranowski was no one’s baby, least of all some guy she’d met thirty seconds
before. “I’m not your baby,” she whispered back, trying not to make a scene on the stage.

“Oh, baby. Tonight you’re gonna be whatever the hell I want you to be.”

perfect kink to marry up with the belting you’re going to receive. I’ll have to consider changing
over to a nice crop instead of my belt.”

Fucking great. I rolled Pony Play.




Prelude by Renee Rose
I came to Black Light on Bratva business, but now that I’m here, I know exactly who I
want: the lovely blonde who doesn’t belong here. The one who requires a delicate touch.
And I swear, by the time I’m through with her, she’ll be begging for more.


I note Lady Luck’s movement before I even turn back. Then I see her striding quickly away, hips
swaying, hair tossed back with a snap of her head. Gone is the softness of a moment ago.
Now, she’s all business, taking long strides in those heels like she was born in them with her
back stiff and straight as a rod.

Blyad.

I take off after her. I don’t want to make a scene. Black Light has dungeon monitors everywhere,
and everyone here considers us to be part of the entertainment. There’s no such thing as privacy
at Black Light on a night like this.

I hustle to catch up with Lady Luck, without calling her name. She’s near the exit.
“Hang on.” I catch her elbow, then immediately release it when she shakes off my touch. “Don’t
run.”

When she whirls, she has fire in her eyes. “Red.”





Unexpected by Measha Stone
Seeking a night of stress relief, Quinn signs up to spin the wheel at Black Light Roulette.
But she’s off to a rough start when her nerves sabotage her ability to be a good girl.
Things don’t improve when she spins an activity that offers more anxiety than relief.
Jack promises to deliver exactly what she needs, but he’s a stranger. Can she ease her
defenses enough to let him see the real her? If she does— will he stay or will he cry off?


“I didn’t mean to sound rude,” she said, and she meant it. People threw her into the bitch
category before getting to know her. She wouldn’t blame any of them. First impressions weren’t
her strong suit. His lips cracked into a smile, not a pleased and handsome one, but rather a grin
that soaked her panties—a knowing grin filled with dark and sinister promises.

“I know you didn’t.” His fingers tightened, sending another jolt of fire through her scalp. “And I
know you weren’t trying to manipulate me into letting you top from the bottom.”

She opened her mouth to agree with him, but the arching of his brow stilled her tongue. That was
exactly what she’d been doing.

“I don’t think we’re supposed to start yet,” she said instead.

His smile didn’t fade as his other hand caressed her jaw.

“I can tell our couples are ready to get started, so everyone have fun and play safe!” Madison’s
voice boomed over the crowd.

“Now we are.” He released her hair. “Let’s go.”


Trained by Sue Lyndon
Daddy Xavier knows Dolly will make the perfect little baby kitten, even though she’s a
complete newbie at pet play. The adorable brunette simply requires training—and he
plans to do a thorough job.


“You’re my little kitten, Dolly,” he said in a firm tone, “and every good little kitten needs a strict
but caring owner to tend to her needs.”

A half-moan, half-whimper escaped her, and in the next moment, he noticed her fidgeting in
place, pressing her thighs tightly together as she stood before him.

“Some kittens call their owners Master, but you’re a very new baby kitten, so you’ll have a
daddy instead, and you may call me Daddy throughout our scene, little kitten. Do you
understand?”

“Yes, Da-Daddy.” A fresh flush appeared upon her cheeks. He thought she looked radiant as she
stood trembling with excitement and blushing bright red.

“Good kitty. Now, step out of your heels and get down on your hands and knees like a sweet
little baby kitten.”



Inflamed by Golden Angel
Their mutual attraction is hot enough to burn the club down and Master Elliott knows it,
even if he won’t admit it. He’s a sadist with fiery kinks and he chooses his subs wisely.
But Lisa knows Master Elliott is wrong about her and she’s signed up to Roulette night to
prove she can handle whatever the wheel throws her way. When the wheel stops
spinning, all bets are off.



“Ow? What hurts?” It was more of a demand than a question, although concern laced his tone.

“I’m fine,” she said, slapping his hands away when he tried to pull the blanket open to look at
her, feeling annoyed. Before he’d been mad when she hadn’t wanted to cuddle, now he was trying
to end their cuddle session in favor of checking her over. “I can handle anything you dish out.”

She’d meant it as a joke, but there was more of an edge to her voice than she’d intended, some of
the feelings she’d had going into Roulette night making themselves known in that one simple
statement.

Master Elliott stilled. “What do you mean by that?”

“Nothing, I’m just teasing,” she said quickly, but the damage had already been done.

Strong fingers caught her jaw, forcing her to turn her head and meet his gaze. The expression on
his face was guarded, but she could see the tension in his shoulders, the way his eyes blazed.
“Are you trying to prove something to me?” Master Elliott asked. His eyes flashed with intense
emotion. “Would you even have said your safe word if you needed to?”


Breathless by Eris Adderly
For him, everything has to be perfectly clean.
For her, everything has been a perfect mess.
She’s going to teach him to breathe.
He’s going to take her breath away.


“Are you afraid of the dark, Miss Payne?”

They were in a room full of neon. “No, Sir?”

His hand came up to catch hold of something near her face. She’d forgotten about the fucking
blindfold.

“A shame.” Latex swung over her face.

Lights out.


Burn by Kay Elle Parker
Montana millionaire Finnegan McLeod spends his life gambling on the whims of nature
but he’s never been more enthusiastic about taking his turn at a Roulette wheel. Luck falls
on his side, throwing little Ava Conway in his path. She fits him like a glove in every
way. The only question is, when they come together how hot will they burn?


“I’ll ask you outright, Ava, before we wrap up this lovely little scene: do you trust me?”

“Yes, Sir.” There was a vehemence in her tone that hadn’t been in it before. A surety. Ava
nodded again as her confidence swelled, in him, and in herself.

“Will you trust me to take care of you even as I hurt you?” He dragged the rounded tip of the
implement in his hand down the shallow valley of her spine.

She closed her eyes, blew out a long slow breath. She knew what came next. “I think you’re the
only one I do,” she murmured. Her cuffed hands gripped the head of the bench. “Maybe the only
one I can.”

His response was the backs of his fingers brushing over her cheek before he moved away.
“We’re going for ten, little dove. Move and I’ll tie you down. Remember to breathe.”

BITE ME ANTHOLOGY

Bite Me: A Vampire Anthology
by Zoe Blake, Addison Cain, Alta Hensley, Sara Fields, Myra Danvers, Anita Gray, Eris Adderly, Livia Bourne , Cassandra Faye

Gold star


As with all anthologies of short stories some characters lack depth and it is difficult to form emotional connections to them. However so far I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how drawn into this book I have been.

3 stars – Cathedral by Addison Cain
My enjoyment of a story is very much linked to how I feel about a character, my connection to them and the emotions they make me feel. Personally I just didn’t care for the female protagonist in this book – did we ever learn her name? I’m not sure, if we did I don’t recall it. This has left me, despite the story and writing being really good, feeling very *meh* about this. 
There is some excellent world building, a fantastic sense of the sinister and in true Addison style one humdinger of a cliff-hanger. In fact that final scene held all the emotion that had been missing, for me, in the rest of the book. It gave the heroine depth, it added that personal element that allowed me to connect with the story.
I’m undecided yet whether I would read the full story, although that ending totally changed the tide.

3.5 stars – Till the End of Time by Zoe Blake
I loved this unusual and compelling take on the Dracula story. The passion between the two protagonists was raw, consuming and depraved. An excellent dark, twisted and gory short story!

4 stars Master of Ceremonies by Alta Hensley
This was a twisty tale with an unusual mix of both darkness and sweetness. I liked the characters and found the plot to be refreshingly different.
For a short story the author managed to pack a very erotic punch and then topped it off with a very twisty teaser of an ending.

5 stars – V is for Vampire by Eris Adderly
Amazing! More please! Now?
This is novella length and is a prequel to a new series Ms Adderly is planning and I’m already in love with November and Leo and very in lust with Rado. Vampire stories aren’t a go-to for me – it was the authors in this anthology that got my interest. However this story has changed my mind. Vamps aren’t the all powerful evil beings you find in most stories, I FLOVED how the author has taken the genre, shaken it up with a big old dollop of seasoning and presented something completely new and captivating.
The anthology is worth buying for this story alone.

5 Stars – Blinding Salvation by Livia Bourne
I loved this wonderful mix of suspense, humour and all things sexy. It’s the opener to a future series by the author but was a complete story within itself. I found myself really falling for Lily and Armand, Livia Bourne imbued her characters with incredible personalities that just draw you in. I can’t wait until she releases more books in this series!

4 stars – Enthralled by Myra Danvers
This story definitely enthralled me, Axton retained a spark of humanity enough to make him likeable. The characters were clearly defined and I liked that this was more about fighting for power between vampires rather than the more common vampire verses humans.

2 stars – The Devil’s Game by Sara Fields
This started so well with a kick-ass heroine and good writing. Then in the second chapter of a very short story there was a glaring continuity error. The heroine is stripped naked (it actually mentions her panties being ripped off and her never having been naked in front of a man before). The anti-hero then removes her panties AGAIN. 
After that it became almost one long sex scene, which some people will love but I wanted the story to move on, rather than up and down, in and out! I also dislike stories where characters personalities radically change because of sex. So for me this was a miss.

5 stars – Sweet Ruin by Cassandra Faye (aka Jennifer Bene)
This story just held my attention from the moment it mentioned the Weeping Angels (OMG I still can’t walk past an angel statue without getting shivers!). Nic is so infuriating but also so sexy, whilst Grace was snarky and strong, despite his best efforts to confound her. At times I wanted to shake or slap one, the other or BOTH of them – but in a good bad way. This is a hot and heavy head-spinning story that will leave you wanting more.  We’re talking ghost chilli hot.

I haven’t read Anita Gray’s story yet.

SYNOPSIS

I have a confession to whisper at your ear. 

That shadow caressing your body in the dark, that tingle which draws you to arch your spine
… it tempts me to ruin. 

You’re beautiful when you sleep.

Everything I long for.

All I ask is a sip, a taste of the life coursing through those delicate veins.

Just one little bite.

And I’ll make you mine… forever.

These tales range from seductively enthralling to soul-slashing horror. 
Read on, and you’ll discover every beautiful shade of night.
